Cooling Watermelon Smoothie

Living in the city, we find that we can’t survive the hot, sticky summers without a cooling breakfast smoothie before braving our usual morning commute! Watermelon is such a refreshing fruit and adds a unique summer flavour to this recipe. Don’t be put off by the carrot, it blends perfectly with the zesty orange! As an added bonus, this smoothie also delivers lots of Vitamin C.

Serves 2

Ingredients:

  • 2 carrots, peeled and chopped into inch-size chunks
  • 1 ½ cups watermelon
  • ½ banana (frozen works well, but it’s not necessary)
  • 1 ½ oranges, peeled
  • 4-6 ice cubes

How to:

Simply combine all ingredients in a blender and blitz until smooth. This is delicious decorated with some dried berries or top it up with our coconut Feel Good Bites. If you really want to feel like you’re on holiday put some watermelon cubes on the end of a stick and pop it into the glass!

Coconut Snowballs

When it comes to cookies, deliciousness usually arrives in the form of ingredients like butter, cream and milk. So, what happens when you can’t eat any of these foods? In our case, We started playing with coconut. These balls of nutritious sweetness are the result!

Makes 12 balls

Ingredients:

  • 1 3/4 cups unsweetened desiccated coconut
  • 2 teaspoons melted coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons agave syrup
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • A pinch of natural sea salt

How To:

Place 1 cup of desiccated coconut in a food processor along with the coconut oil. Blend on a high speed, scraping down the sides every now and then, until you have a paste-like consistency. Add the agave, coconut milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt and blend until thoroughly mixed. Add ½ a cup of desiccated coconut and pulse until just combined.

Shape the mixture into 12 (1-inch) balls and roll them to coat with the remaining desiccated coconut. Refrigerate for at least an hour to set. They taste best at room temperature, so take them out of the fridge for a bit before eating. If you are far more disciplined than US, they will keep in the fridge for up to five days!
